Maintenance-free facade and stunning location on the Østfold cabin.
Cabins and resorts are no longer reserved for a traditional southern style.
Many cabins along the coast excels with exciting architecture, thoughtful patios and thoughts on adaptation to the terrain around.
To prevent maintenance, choose more and more robust building materials that can withstand a noise. So also with this cabin in Østfolds archipelago.
There are ceilings and walls in the well-designed cabin, so-called maintenance-free.
The summer place signed architect Erik Collett and interior designer Hanne Arvik are just the kind that almost disappears between gray mountains and old crooked pine trees.
This gives the architects, while they have built a remarkable tower that crosses the tree tops.
High and Low Time
– We would subordinate the buildings to the crazy but equally beautiful coastal landscape here on the Østfold coast, says architect MNAL Erik Collett in Kritt Architects in Oslo to Hytteliv. no
View and Shield
– In combination with this discreet location of the cabin we would take care of the view. Both the sea and the areas near the cabin, “said the expert.
He collaborated with interior designer MNIL Anne Aarvik, general manager of Metropolis interior architects, about the cabin itself – and with Ellen Hodt in Corniche Decor on interior and exterior furniture and textiles.
The owners, a sea and boat-loving family, thought carefully through the location of the cabin on the ridge and what they needed of space to get to the cozy living room for more.
Fantastic fun cabin by the Oslo Fjord
The solution became a long-term main house on one floor. It has many large windows, a variety of doors and openings to nature.
The style should be clean, maritime and modern at the same time. Residents would have only a few light and light colors in the houses.
The delicate colors used are therefore left in several places. The bedrooms should all have built-in beds – something that fits the cabin’s style in an excellent way.
The owners’ goal was to merge warmth and personality into the modern style of architecture that the architect was about.
Barrel vault at the top
The low-rise building has a characteristic barrel vaulted with zinc exterior. The cottage contains both kitchen, dining room, living room and hallways.
The corridors that go both in and across the house provide exciting sea-gulled. From the atrium in the middle of the plant and across the main house.
The minimalist design of the wall and window structure also helps to give the owners a magnificent sea view from within.
The terraces both in front and rear of the main house, in the atrium and towards the tower, have wooden pieces of untreated Siberian larch.
In some places, this durable, silver gray wood material is cut to the rock.
The wooden tower, kneeling on the deck just behind the main cabin, is the second main body in the plant.
It includes bedrooms, bathrooms, stalls and working rooms. From the viewpoint on the top floor at the top of the tower there is a panoramic view of the trees.
Summer cabin that has everything
